QPL Reference Manual

The QPL system uses a number 'built-in' or default labels and phrases to create your web site in addition to the text you write for your questions and the home page. You may, however, change these default phrases to use other terms or other languages. To do this, you first need to find the code number for the phrase from the list below and then use that code number to define a new label.

Default Phrase Syntax

.# = "label"

Note: The pound sign indicates where a number is used. Your new label must be written inside double quotation marks and should be less than about 500 characters long, though you should approximate the size of the original label so it will fit when your web page is displayed to the respondent.

.194 = "(Please check all of the answers that may apply.)"

In this example, the default check-all-that-apply instruction code, 194, is used to change the label from "(CHECK ALL THAT APPLY)" to "(Please check all of the answers that may apply.)."

These commands may be used anywhere in your program, but are usually placed at the beginning with other global settings. Or you may put them into a separate program file and use the INCLUDE command to use them in your project.

If you are using the HomeSite HTML editor, you may use the "Default phrases and settings" button
(HomeSite Default Phrases Button) on the QPL tool bar to change these settings.

You can not change these labels from question to question in your program. Any change affects all of the questions in your program.

You may use HTML commands in some phrases to modify the default presentation of the text. Special HTML characters, however, must be escaped in your QPL program. For information on how to use these HTML codes in your QPL program, please see Text Format Options.

The first table below lists the labels sorted by code number, and the second table lists the labels sorted by the label.
